Partaaay!

We Green Pinkies are pleased to announce that our Happy Hollow House Retrofit project was selected as one of the finalists in the Energy Value Housing Award sponsored by the National Home Builder’s Association!  We have been invited to receive either a gold or silver award at the February 2012 convention of the NHB held in Orlando, Florida.  At that time the top awards will be given out.

One of those awards is ‘Peoples’ Choice’.  This is where all of you can cast your vote for our project.  We will inform you all when the voting is open.  It is done by each person selecting a house from a list posted on-line.  The voting will begin sometime around mid-November.  We will certainly post the details when and where you all can cast your ballots as soon as we know them.

…And this leads to an interesting thought:  Although we, GreenPinkies, are a mother/daughter team representing Northwest Arkansas for the existing home category, there is also a father/son team, Stitt Energy, building energy efficient houses up in the Bentonville area, who have  been selected as finalists in the new home category.  What a great thing if we could sweep the competition for both new and existing homes for Northwest Arkansas!

Last thought, for those who missed the Mitch Roberts, Channel 5  News story about the GreenPinkies on September 1st,  here is the link:

It is a 2 minute synopsis of what we did with the house.  (complete with a free commercial message from a local Fayetteville business).  Enjoy!
